Sri Lanka's record men's T20I win lasted almost 12 years until Romania beat it yesterday, but the Romanians had just a day to enjoy their place on the top of that particular list as the Czech Republic stormed past it today in Moara Vlăsiei.

Put into bat by Turkey, the Czechs pummelled the Turkish bowlers for 278, equalling Afghanistan's T20I record total. Tunahan Turan came in for much of the punishment, going for 70 runs from his four overs, one more than Ireland's Barry McCarthy's previous worst four over spell. Czech batsman Sudesh Wickramasekara hit an unbeaten 104 from just 36 balls, bringing up his century from 35 balls to equal the fastest T20I hundred with David Miller and Rohit Sharma.

Turkey - who have some first choice players missing due to visa issues - were then bundled out for just 21 - a new lowest men's T20I total following their 24 against Luxembourg - and lost by the huge margin of 257, the biggest ever in men's T20Is.

The Czechs didn't have as an easy time of it in their first match earlier in the day, losing by 8 wickets to Austria. The other match of the day saw Romania make it three wins from three and secured their place in Sunday's final when they beat Austria by 31 runs.

The tournament continues tomorrow with the hosts looking to make it four wins from four when they take on the rampant Czech team. Austria will be pulling double duty with matches against Luxembourg and Turkey.
